Yates will participate in DWI crackdown

NEW YORK STATE--Yates County Stop-DWI Coordinator Sheriff Ron Spike has announced Yates County police agencies will participate in a special enforcement effort to crackdown on impaired driving Friday, Jan. 31 through Monday, Feb. 3.
The Super Bowl football game is America's most-watched national sporting event and Super Bowl weekend is historically a deadly period for impaired driving.
Research shows that high-visibility enforcement can reduce impaired driving fatalities by as much as 20 percent. Sobriety checkpoints play a key part in raising awareness about the problem. New York State Police, County Sheriffs and municipal law enforcement agencies will collaborate across the state and will be out in force in this coordinated effort to reduce the number of alcohol-related injuries and deaths.
"If you're hosting a Super Bowl party, designate a responsible driver before the game begins," said Penn Yan Police Chief Tom Dunham, "We want fans to remember that it's a choice. So root for your favorite team; enjoy your friends and family and remember "DON'T DRIVE, GET A RIDE!"
The Statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown Campaign also targets St. Patrick's Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day Weekend, Halloween and the national holiday season in December.
"Highly visible, highly publicized efforts like this STOP-DWI Crackdown Campaign aim to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving," said Sheriff Spike.
